Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Brenda Lawrence will host a meeting today to talk to people impacted by a recent spill into the Detroit River. This comes as new test results are now in on the potentially bio-hazardous contamination. New test results say there are no detectable levels of contamination. The seawall at Detroit Bulk Storage collapsed the night before Thanksgiving. Roughly 9,000 yards of material from a potentially contaminated site spilled into the Detroit river.
